I Rode a Rainbow Unicorn

I rode a rainbow unicorn.

We sailed  across the sky.

(I’d fed him lots of skittles,

Since they always make him fly.)

We took off like a comet

on a long and graceful flight.

And everywhere the people stopped

And marveled at the sight .

His path was  bright and colorful.

It sparkled, shimmered, shined,

as he raced across the heavens

Shooting rainbow from behind.

Olivia's favourite poem.




I made myself a snowball, as perfect as could be 

I thought I'd keep it as a pet and let it sleep with me 

I made it some pyjamas and a pillow for its head. 

Then last night it ran away, but first it wet the bed.

By Shel Silverstein 

A humorous poem chosen by Reece.



Molly’s Poem

Love you yesterday

Love you still

Always have and always  will

Friends are flowers that never fade

Like fresh lemons from lemonade.

Written by Molly S


Always have and alw

ke fresh lemons from lemonade.

We enjoyed reading the poem 'The Marrog' by R.C. Scriven. The poem describes what 'The Marrog' looks like. We have drawn 'The Marrog'. What is similar about our drawings and what differences do you notice?

We have created our own wonderful aliens/monsters. We have then been poets and written our own poems about our aliens/monsters. We have tried to use the same structure of verse one and two from R.C.Striven's poem called 'The Marrog'.

Meet Zoggit!  

By Louie McAuslane-Luffman 


Zoggit is a big, kind creature, 

Zoomed to earth from planet Bob, 

He landed in my garden 

Shouting “good to meet-ya! 

Do you have a dog? 


I love all types of dogs you see, 

Spotty, tall, big and small”, 

My dog Chase ran with Zoggit 

We all played and he stayed for tea, 

Flying off in his ship so tall!
